Introducing the Problem & Brief Comments on Thomas Bearden

By  Franz J. T. Lee

Already on June 12, 2000,  in an article, "The Unnecessary Energy Crisis: How to Solve It Quickly", T. E. Bearden, LTC, U.S. Army (Retired) CEO, CTEC Inc., the Director of the Association of Distinguished American Scientists (ADAS) and a Fellow Emeritus of the Alpha Foundation's Institute for Advanced Study (AIAS), explained the energetic quintessence of the current world recession, depression and crisis. In the last analysis, within this context, the current crisis of Venezuela and the war on Iraq have to be seen.

Below I am publishing this excellent document, from which I will quote some passages. What did he write with reference to the world energy crisis?

The world energy crisis is now driving the economies of the world nations.  Presently there is an escalating worldwide demand for electrical power and transportation, much of which depends on fossil fuels and particularly oil or oil products.  The resulting demand for oil is expected to increase year by year. Recent sharp rises in some U.S. metropolitan areas included gasoline at more than $2.50 per gallon already.

At the same time, it appears that world availability of oil may have peaked in early 2000, if one factors in the suspected Arab inflation of reported oil reserves.  From now on it appears that oil availability will steadily decline, slowly at first but then at an increasing pace."

Concerning the "some 150 nations", mainly of South America, Africa and Asia,  who live outside the big metropolitan countries, he explained their immediate future:

The transfer of manufacturing and production to many of these nations is a transfer to essentially "slave labour" nations where workers have few if any benefits, are paid extremely low wages, work long hours, and have no unions or bargaining rights.  The local politicians can usually be "bought" very cheaply so that there are also no effective government controls.  This has set up a de facto return to the feudalistic capitalism of an earlier era when enormous profits could be and were extracted from the backs of impoverished workers, and government checks and balances were nil."

Already in 2000, what did Bearden foresee for the immediate future?

"Bluntly, we foresee these factors — and others { } not covered — converging to a catastrophic collapse of the world economy in about eight years.  As the collapse of the Western economies nears, one may expect catastrophic stress on the 160 developing nations as the developed nations are forced to dramatically curtail orders."  

Thus, how do the desperate actions of blowing up "Twin Towers" and declaring "new wars" on Afghanistan and Iraq, including oil sabotage in Venezuela, fit into this gruesome picture?

History bears out that desperate nations take desperate actions.  Prior to the final economic collapse, the stress on nations will have increased the intensity and number of their conflicts, to the point where the arsenals of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) now possessed by some 25 nations, are almost certain to be released.  As an example, suppose a starving North Korea { } launches nuclear weapons upon Japan and South Korea, including U.S. forces there, in a spasmodic suicidal response."

And, how did he portray the current global fascism that has been launched shortly thereafter?

The resulting great Armageddon will destroy civilization as we know it, and perhaps most of the biosphere, at least for many decades.
My personal estimate is that, beginning about 2007, on our present energy course we will have reached an 80% probability of this ´final destruction of civilization itself´ scenario occurring at any time, with the probability slowly increasing as time passes.  One may argue about the timing, slide the dates a year or two, etc., but the basic premise and general time frame holds.  We face not only a world economic crisis, but also a world destruction crisis."

We have reached the Year 2003, which for him is a critical year: 

"The 2003 date appears to be the critical "point of no return" for the survival of civilization as we have known it.  
Reaching that point, say, in 2005 will not solve the crisis in time, and the collapse of the world economy as well as the destruction of civilization and the biosphere will still almost certainly occur, even with the solutions in hand. ...
Eerily, this very threat now looms in our not too distant future, due in large part to the increasing and unbearable stresses that escalating oil prices will elicit. So about seven years or so from now, we will enter the period of the threat of the Final Armageddon, unless we do something very, very quickly now, to totally and permanently solve the present "electrical energy from oil" crisis."

what Is required to solve the problem? Venezuela, listen very carefully to what he said.

"To avoid the impending collapse of the world economy and/or the destruction of civilization and the biosphere, we must quickly replace much of the "electrical energy from oil" heart of the crisis at great speed, and simultaneously replace a significant part of the "transportation using oil products" factor also. ...
In the name of all humanity, let us begin!  Else by the time this first decade of the new millennium ends, much of humanity may not remain to see the second decade."

 What solutions he had suggested, you could read in the document attached, however, according to him, it is now already too late. No real measure was taken to avoid a global catastrophy.  

At any event, la lutta continua, but it is important to see the real, true, historic context of the current Venezuelan crisis; its solution is to be found neither in "away with Chavéz" nor in "away with the three "Carlos".  

Here is the original writing:   
The Unnecessary Energy Crisis:
How to Solve It Quickly.



It is my intent to simply place here many of my papers, write-ups, information, etc. so that the information is more widely available.  As I've just passed my 72nd birthday, I'm very much impressed with how slowly science changes and how quickly we humans age.  I realize that every human being is fragile; one could simply depart this life at any moment.

So it seemed fitting to at least leave behind what I think I've learned or in some cases discovered.  If these are even partially correct, then some of them have potentially significant implications.  It is particularly important, I think, to make the material available for all those sharp young grad students and post-docs who are looking for where the real holes are in their present scientific models.  Certainly I've not found all of the holes by any means, but I believe I have found a few of them.  These we will try to point out, and in some cases we will also indicate what we think is the way to correct them.

The purpose of the site is for information only.  I do not have time for, nor am I interested in, debating how many angels can dance on the head of a pin, so to speak.  Whether a particular model is "right" or "wrong" is not the question; the question is, is it useful and does it predict some new and useful results?   Eventually, technical concepts are useful only if they can do something different, provide a better model, etc.  Also, abstract mathematics is a wonderful exercise and set of models, but the physics is in the concepts which the mathematical symbols represent and which the mathematical operations manipulate.  The physics is not in the mathematics itself, per se.

So we will range across a large field of ideas.  We'll indicate those where we've found there is experimental validation or practical use.  Others, we will just present for consideration and list some possible implications. The level will be, hopefully, detailed concepts.  We will also have a go at some better definitions for such things as charge, potential, energy, time, mind, thought, etc.  Slowly we'll put up - and develop - a special glossary.

We'll even have a go at pointing out suggested changes in Aristotelian logic and some of its shortcomings.

And interspersed throughout the material will be suitable reference citations.  These will help the reader to see what influenced my thinking, and let him or her go back to the original source to see if it really does say what I say that it did.  This way, the reader can make up his or her own mind about those points and those references.

If these papers, concepts, and ideas stimulate further thought and particularly further development by the target audience, then the purpose of this website will have been fulfilled.

The first things we will be addressing are in the energy field, particularly with respect to an initial theory of permissible electrical power systems that take EM energy from the vacuum and use it to power loads.  Our emphasis will be on mechanisms, concepts, and principles.  The second things we will be addressing will be in the medical research field.  Particularly, we will extend Becker's work to deal with the electrical operation of the cellular regeneration system, which is the body's healing mechanism.  We will also address possible future development of therapeutic systems along the lines pioneered by Prioré, Becker, and others.

To do these first two things, we will also have to address the nature of time, the mechanism that generates the flow of a mass through time, and time as a special form of highly compressed energy.  Here we will cite some experiments consistent with the thesis taken.

A few older papers may be placed on the site to show the original, far more immature thinking at the time, but also to illustrate the thrust of that thinking.  These will, I hope, clearly show that real progress has been made.

Next we will address the nature of mind, thought, mind operations, and the mind-body connection.  We will particularly deal with the type of radically extended electrodynamics required, including transverse, longitudinal, and time-polarized EM waves and photons.  In addition, we will address the "infolded" internal longitudinal EM waves, currents, and energy inside all normal EM waves, potentials, and fields.  What is in the present textbook are only the "surface manifestations" of a vast, hidden, superelectromagnetics for which all conventional EM entities (fields, waves, potentials) inside matter and in space are just superhighways.  As an example, by the time we get a year along into the site, I expect to see a superluminal communication system entering the commercial markets.  The system is already working now, and is built by a close colleague and friend.

We will say more about that when the time comes.

Eventually we will get around, perhaps, to the real decisive weapons presently holding the fate of humanity.  They are not the "ordinary" weapons such as nuclear weapons and long range missiles, that so preoccupy the news media.

Anyway, we hope you find the material of interest, and perhaps it may be of assistance here and there to some young fellows who will find  beneficial applications and extensions I have not yet even thought of.  If so, then the purpose of this website will have been fulfilled.

In everything we do, we will occasionally point out that the Sachs-Evans unified field theory does possess the ability to model what is being discussed.  A little of it has been modeled by Evans; much of it still remains to be fully expressed in good mathematical fashion but in the Sachs-Evans O(3) electrodynamics.

I would like to close this "mission statement" with a quotation from Albert Einstein, which succinctly summarizes my own scientific philosophy and also, in a way, the mission of this website material.  In his foreword to Max Jammer's Concepts of Space: The History of Theories of Space in Physics, Harvard University Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts, 1969, p. xi-xii, Einstein made the following profound observation:

"...the scientist makes use of a whole arsenal of concepts which he imbibed practically with his mother's milk; and seldom if ever is he aware of the eternally problematic character of his concepts.  He uses this conceptual material, or, speaking more exactly, these conceptual tools of thought, as something obviously, immutably given; something having an objective value of truth which is hardly even, and in any case not seriously, to be doubted. the interests of science it is necessary over and over again to engage in the critique of these fundamental concepts, in order that we may not unconsciously be ruled by them."

At any rate, posting the results of our decades of re-examination of concepts is our task, and we shall get on with it.  But it is also just as important, if not even more important, to keep one's sense of humor.  So we will also try to not tread too heavily, and ever so often even to "lighten up", so to speak.  In that respect, remember that human knowledge is not absolute; at best it is a useful model or a set of useful models.  At worst it is a set of biases that are of little utility or even useless.  The theory of modeling tells us that we shall never have a perfect theory, but only a theory which is useful perhaps, and still in the act of becoming. 

Ralph Waldo Emerson said it beautifully: 

"Nothing is rich but the inexhaustible wealth of nature.  She shows us only surfaces, but she is a million fathoms deep."  

We have tried to get just a fathom or two deeper, and that is what the material will present.

To the reader, we wish you good reading, and also we wish you good fortune in your own quest, whatever it might be.
